Heat applied by use of moxa sticks (rolled dried herbs) warm specific energy channels and trigger a hormonal change and increase the baby’s activity encouraging the turning of position. Research has shown that moxibustion has about a 66% success rate.
We highly recommended and incorporate the use of aromatherapy, reflexology and massage to offer a bespoke treatment within the first 6-week postnatal period. Treatments can be specified for individual symptoms.
